    Flex 3401 vs Rupes pads and compounds

    Hi all from Brazil,

    I'd like to know if someone here have tried some rupes combinations pads and buffers with flex VRG 3401.
    What were your experience? Is it a valid combination?

    I'm having some cut troubles with flex 3401 and i'm thinking to test differents pad and coumpounds and thought about Rupes.

    Any opinion?

    I don't know what brand of pads you are using for the Flex, however, I use the Lake Country Hybrid Pads for my Flex 3401 and it works great. In fact, I think they make the pads for the Flex 3401 (correct me if I am wrong). You might consider that Brand.

    Tks for reply and suggest.
    I'm using almost all my jobs LC pads too.
    Here in Brazil, we have some great pads brands (wool and foam) that do amazing jobs that I've been using.
    I was thinking about test carpro and rupes pads with VRG 3401...
